I very very very very very very strongly disagree with this. The Comandante I've used wasn't even a pale shadow of my Bunnzilla, let alone my tungsten SSP'd EG or an EK, which are both more than subtly better than the BunnZ.

I don't really find this at all true either. I don't know, maybe your R120 is, but I never found the Bunnzilla any messier or more awkward than a home grinder, and in fact found the exact opposite. Far cleaner, lower retention, and overall well behaved than any electric home grinder. The singular drawback being the size and noise. And from a friend with an EK and Bunnzilla at home, the EK's both cleaner and quieter. And it's easy enough to stick a cordless vacuum by your setup for any mess anyway.
